Donald Trump is Demoting Campaign Manager Brad Parscale
Brad Parscale helped manage Donald Trump’s online presence in 2016. His work there got him noticed and he moved up the latter. In March of 2018, Trump hired the Texan to manage his entire 2020 campaign.
The campaign manager was quite boastful and confident in his candidate. He memorably referred to the Trump campaign at the Death Star. But now Parscale will be demoted back to his original job. The President made the announcement Wednesday night on Facebook.
The move is not all that surprising considering Trump’s disastrous Tulsa, Oklahoma rally and cratering poll numbers.
NEW: Trump has just announced on Facebook that Brad Parscale is OUT as Trump's campaign manager. Bill Stepien is the new campaign manager.

“I am pleased to announce that Bill Stepien has been promoted to the role of Trump Campaign Manager. Brad Parscale, who has been with me for a very long time and has led our tremendous digital and data strategies, will remain in that role, while being a Senior Advisor to the campaign. Both were heavily involved in our historic 2016 win, and I look forward to having a big and very important second win together. This one should be a lot easier as our poll numbers are rising fast, the economy is getting better, vaccines and therapeutics will soon be on the way, and Americans want safe streets and communities!”
